A green mini-festival promoting recycling waste to benefit both our homes and the environment is on the way to Wandsworth.
On the last weekend of Wandsworth Fringe, re-use charity Wandsworth SCrapstore brings you Hazelfest, a fun day out offering demos and workshops on how to upcycle- re-use for creatives purposes- and recycle materials.
Using donated items it receives from green-minded companies, the charity wants to make use of waste that would otherwise go to landfill/incinerators.
The event is on Saturday, May 20, at the Hazelhurst Estate on Blackshaw Road, from 12-4pm.
To kick-off Hazelfest, the Mayor of Wandsworth, Councillor Richard Fields, is cutting the ribbon at 12pm and parliamentary candidate for Tooting Rosena Alin-Khan is attending at 12.30pm. All the festivities are under the cover of tents, in case people are worried about the potential rain.
Confirmed activities include:
- Junk self-portraits from Cool It Art
- Milk bottle puppets from Ruth Moyler
- Upcycled weaving with Weavie Stevie,
- Community painting
- Dress-a-teddy with Catherine
- Putney and Wandsworth Brass Band
